A very vague title. Not pretty much anything to go with.

Maybe the Grookey and Eevee episode?

Yep, it is!
Summary courtesy of Dephendor:
Satoshi, Go and Koharu are visiting a Pokémon Center, where the naughty Sarunori and Eievui are constantly keeping them on their toes. Go and Koharu insist their Pokémon are actually really good kids, and Satoshi decides to help out by suggesting they give the Poémon duo an errand to run. Will their first errand go smoothly?

Screenplay 赤尾でこ (Deko Akao)
Storyboard 尼野浩正 (Hiromasa Amano)

Oh. Another "Pokemon have an adventure on their own" episode...

I'll wait until we know more, but I think I might skip it...

Yay! I missed PMD episodes!
Even if they're not amazing, they're still a very nice change of pace.
I thought we'd never get one because Scorbunny, Sobble and Riolu already evolved but I'm glad to be wrong.

I have a feeling "Use" should be translated as "Errand" instead, but I'm not sure.

So the Project Mew arc has one episode before a break and isn't continuous, great

When good, these Pokemon wandering around episodes can be brilliant (I loved the Alola starter trio ep for example). This kind of story might be right up Deko Akao's street tbf?...

episode 69 nice

but whats not very nice imo?? ashs team desperately needs focus and we decide fo focus on eevee and grookey. episodes where pokemon are the main stars can really add so much character and personality to the focused pokemon, and this kind of episode wouldve been perfect to yknow........ actually give ashs team focus?? like imagine the possibilities...... maybe gengar is being a trickster and trying to prank its teammates, and maybe sirfetchd is having none of it because thats not very noble behavior. or maybe dragonite is being happy and huggy with the "im so done with this bs please stop" stoic lucario. but noooooOOOOOO eevee and grookey need even more screentime because POKEMON LETS GO EEVEE(tm) AND POKEMON SWORD AND SHIELD(tm) ON SALE NOW

not doubting that this episode is gonna be bad because its been FAR too long since a (seemingly) pokemon driven episode, but i dont feel like buying lets go or swsh when im salty over ashs team not existing. did he even catch a gengar at this point

AGAIN? Okay, this is beyond a joke. I’m willing to let the fact that all writers face a blockage and need time to recover, so one/two rehashes are alright, but are you kidding me? As people have mentioned, this is another rehash of a previous episode in another series. Despite me really loving Bunnelby and Chespin’s episode, this is dumb.
They’re at least saved by the fact this technically at the moment isn’t a filler, cause we might see Eevee/Grookey learn something new or develop in terms of personality.
In the space of almost half a year, I’ve enjoyed probably two episodes at max. That is shocking, so I really hope it can spark the magic of that XY episode.

EDIT: Why doesn’t Gengar classify in this? Dammit, give the poor thing something to do! It’s mischievous, so let it misbehave with Grookey and Eevee - it’s literally up Gengar’s ally and they still haven’t used it!

So we got a Lucario and Cinderace bonding episode

And now a Grookey and Eevee bonding episode

After this Drizzile will be the only Galar Starter who hasn't had a bonding episode yet

So what I'm saying is, When are we going to get a episode focused on Cinderace and Drizzile's bond? :unsure:

@duringpampers or @swiftgallade46, please change the "Use" in the title to "Errand". It's the correct translation.
Respectfully, please stop tagging me to change titles. Ask the OP to do it and be patient. I or another staff member will fix it on our own if/when we notice it’s off.

This type of plot is a common trope in several Pokémon series dating back to the Island of Giant Pokémon in the OS. It’s not really a rehash as much as it’s just is a different way of telling a story.
